Here is a solution that seems to work on most devices

  1. Load up Netflix and go to the main screen
  2. On your remote, use the directional arrow keys to enter this combination: Up Up, Down Down, Left Right, Left Right, Up Up, Up Up, Up
  3. (That's 2 Ups, 2 Downs, Left - Right 2 times, then 5 Ups)
  4. You should get the following (or similar) dialog popping up, with an option to Deactivate this Netflix device
  5. Go ahead and do so
  6. Then just re-enter your Netflix login and password after re-opening the app

This morning I went to a local clients house to setup his new LG Smart TV, all was going as norm until we tried to register the TV for firmware and app upgrades.
For some reason the email address which he has used for 4 years has now been blocked as it is a “FREE Mail account” Sure enough a quick check on Sender Base confirmed this mail box has indeed been blocked.

As the client had no other email address I had to set him up a homenetwork.email address which solved the problem.

If you also find issues setting up Smart TV’s or have problems with your email being blocked/continuously being sent to the spam folder of recipients I may be able to help.

BBC retires its iPlayer diagnostic speed test tool

Written by

The BBC iPlayer speed checker was a useful tool for those chasing to see how their connection might perform for video streaming, but alas the tool appears to have been retired and looks set to be replaced by a table showing what speeds different types of iPlayer content will require.

As a general guide for internet speeds I use Speed Test this is a great test for a quick benchmark but lacks a little of the finer details.

Example of Speed Test .NET results


The other speed test which I use for more detailed info is think broadbands flash based test, it provides quite a lot more ino

Example of a think broadband test

I have provided links to both test websites in the Useful Links section.

Try them both and see the difference.

iTunes Library Recovery

iTunes Library Recovery

Have you ever lost your iTunes library from your computer or laptop?

I’m sure like me many people have, songs, apps movies purchased from the iTunes store are easily recovered from iTunes themselves but it’s the albums and songs you have spent hours installing from cd, media devices, tapes and vinyl
(Yes I just said vinyl in 2014)

Well I may just be able to help; I can restore your library directly from your iPhone, iPad or iPod.

If your library was located on a windows machine and is now gone give me a call

I may be able to save you hours of work.....

Portable Appliance Testing (also known as PAT Testing) is a way of checking your electrical equipment to see if it is SAFE.

Although not specifically a legal requirement, Portable Appliance Testing is a very necessary part of your organisation's Health and Safety regime. It doesn't matter whether you're a sole trader or a large multi-national corporation; if you use electrical equipment in your business, then you have a responsibility to make sure it is safe.
